Data Protection and Privacy

At The Sele School we take Data Protection and Privacy very seriously. On 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force in the UK; these build on the Data Protection Act of 1998.

The GDPR require public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘data protection by design and default’ approach to personal data. In line with GDPR requirements, we have appointed a Data Protection Officer, Matthew Smith (Governor), to oversee our approach to data management and protection. 

In order to ensure that we comply with the new regulations, we are reviewing our current policies and practices. We have updated our privacy notices in line with the new requirements and these can be downloaded below:

Privacy Notice for Parents and Carers

You may also find it helpful to refer to the Data Protection and Privacy Notice Summary which can be downloaded below:

As part of the compliance process, we are in the process of completing other updates such as consent forms, home school agreements and IT User Agreements that we have with parents and students. The new regulations are clear that consent must be up-to-date and clearly recorded; lack of response cannot be interpreted as implied consent. 

Consequently when you receive the updated forms please ensure that you return these to us promptly. Copies will be added to this page as they become available. 

The Updated IT User Agreement for students and parents is now available and can be downloaded below:
